Upcoming Lecture at The Currier Museum

I am so honored to be giving a lecture on my process as a landscape painter and how it relates to the Hudson River School, Nov. 3rd between 7 and 7:30pm at The Currier Museum , in Manchester N.H.

The lecture also aligns  with a remarkable show the museum is doing on 19th century white mountain art called “Mount Washington: The Crown of New England”.

This 19th century John Kensett painting of Mount Washington will be at the show. 

In my lecture I plan to discuss the Hudson River School artist’s approach of working from drawings and plein-air sketches to make their larger studio paintings. And more generally how these artists saw and studied nature.

 

Please join me Nov. 3rd! Should be a wonderful evening.

Recent Lecture and Demonstration at The Museum of the White Mountains

I was so honored to lecture and demonstrate on the subject of 19th century landscape painting techniques at the Museum of the White Mountains recently.  In the lecture I talked about the common process among artists of that time to do drawings and color studies outdoors, then bring this information back to the studio to make larger studio paintings. And how these larger pictures were done in a layered process , first with an under-painting , then several layers of glazing and scummbling.

Understanding the Sky, for Artists. Upcoming Workshop.

Lauren Sansaricq Sunset at Inspiration Point 12 x 18 in. Oil on panel web

      This upcoming Nov. 18th to 20th 2016 , I will be teaching a workshop on “Understanding the Sky for Artists” at The Grand Central Atelier in New York City. It will be a studio workshop , and is open to all levels! Here is my description:

“The sky is the heart of a landscape painting.

In this studio workshop we will dive into studying and painting the sky with oils. We will discuss how the sky is changing at different times of day, and what consistent principles can be found. We will talk about the atmospheric perspective and different varieties of clouds and how they optically interact with the sky. Atmospheric glazing and other types of glazing will be demonstrated. A combination of imagination and reference material from master paintings will be used, no photography.”
